The birds of the heaven have their habitation which sing among the branches..
Psalm 104: 12
I thought at first this bird was getting building materials together for a nest but then I read that the goldfinches do not breed until late summer around August when thistledown is available for their tightly woven nests...She was grabbing the soft dried blossoms and leaves off the Olive Tree when I shot this picture of her today and she was eating it...to perhaps supplement her diet. I learn something new every day with nature and birds teach us so eloquently how to live the simple life.
Song birds in natures habitat
Know exactly where it's at...
On the branches of an Olive tree.
When they use their brain,
To sing joy among thee,
We learn they've sung it simply.
For peace on earth to reign...
Poetry by me, AJP
